1991 Mercedes Benz 500sl • V8 • 88,000 miles

I own a 1991 Mercedes-Benz sl500 and ive recently got it running after much effort. Whenever I turn the key the engine turns over with no problem but it doesnt start every time. Most of the time I have to use ether to get it started. Once its started whenever I try to race the engine is dies down and makes a continuous popping sound and if I dont release the gas it with stall. Please help : (
